World Health Day is a key event to recognise, promote, and raise awareness of global health matters around the world. It falls on 7 April each year and marks the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1948. Each year it has a theme to highlight a global health issue. The theme for the 2019 World Health Day is Universal Health Coverage.

The Department works closely with the WHO and will support World Health Day through promotion of the day and its key messages on social media platforms. We have done this for other global health days, including World Health Day 2018.
